I am not a big drinker. Really, my whole family isn’t. But I’ve been finding these recipes for cute-looking drinks on Pinterest. This is the one I made for our Christmas dinner. It’s a “Winter White Sangria.” (You can find the original recipe here.)
Soccer Mom and I made some the other night to celebrate a great GPA and 2012! We sat outside on the porch and read books & magazines. It was even chilly outside so we snuggled under blankets. (Unheard of by Tampa standards.)
What you’ll need:
3 Cans of Sprite
Definitely, remove your jewelry. You don’t know how tricky these little pomegranates are!
I suggest watching some videos on Youtube about how to deal with them. I watched two before I felt comfortable to “de-seed.”
Also, wear an apron and a shirt you don’t care about.
Wash the pomegranates. Take a knife and slice the skin, dividing the fruit into quarters. Then cut the top, kind of like a pumpkin. Then pry open the fruit.
I used two pomegranates so we would have extra seeds.
Here’s the boring part. I took each little section and dunked it in a bowl of water. While the seed is under water, maneuver the seeds away from the skin.
Drain the seeds.
Slice the limes.
Pour everything into a pitcher.
Add ice and serve!
